efficient than Google ad wards. This models needs to be more focused on and promoted on so that many more restaurants and companies can give their advertisements on it. The website of the company is not so attractive and whenever customers visits the website they are not attracted towards watching it as they are attracted in case of Snapdeal and Myntra websites. And cost effective also. Closing the deals of volume sales were much easier as all the restaurants and construction company are willing to buy the raw material in the lowest price which they can get so they were at least ready to give their requirements so that the company cab provide them with quotation and if they find the price lower as compared to others they can buy the material from us.Findings The finding from the report was that the company is having a wonderful business model which can really help them in bringing the change in the thinking of the customers. photos and interested information were putted on the company page on facebook more and more people were liking it. All the three business models that the company is having are very unique and innovative. The advertisement model of the company is very innovative. As the blogs. this we can say as after doing this the likes on the page started increasing at a high rate. 35 .

Company should try to put more and more interesting photos and content on the website so that it can get more and more like on its page and the more the number of likes indicate more people know about the company. When the deals of volume sales are made the company should give credit to the clients because as a new player in the field of volume sales the company first needs to establish a position between other players and as the restaurants and construction company have their vendors from before from which they can get credit so if the company is not providing them credit facility it my loose many deals. Company should try to build more trust in the mind of the customers. 36 . As the company are getting good requirement for the volume sales from the restaurants’ and construction companies so they should not delay in giving the quotation back to the company.RECOMMENDATION One of the most important recommendations for the company is to improve their website as the website is not at all attractive as compared to the other competitor website which is very attractive.

Once this model has become familiar to the restaurants and Construction Company more and more of them will be willing to join this model so as to do their advertisement For the volume sales I can conclude that the company is getting a fair number of requirements from the restaurants and construction company the only drawback is the as due to the lack of vendor for the material the company cannot provide the price quotation to the clients on time because of which they are losing deals. As the business model which the company is using in the case of advertisement is very new to the customer so it will take some more time for the customer to understand this model. 37 .CONCLUSION After doing this project I can conclude that mydeals247 is a company with very innovative and cost effective business models.
